Bend Transient Arrested After Violent Confrontation With Police

BEND, OR -- A Bend area transient was arrested Saturday afternoon following a violent confrontation with police. Bend Police Lieutenant Juli McConkey says 26-year-old Jonathan Emanuel Solis was reported drunk and aggressively threatening people near Brentwood Avenue and Brosterhous Road. She says police tried to divert Solis’s attention and instead he charged at them. A K-9 was deployed. McConkey says Solis choked, punched and kicked the dog, then tried to hit it with a large rock. She says an officer knocked the rock out of Solis’s hand and the dog was not hit. She says police used Tasers multiple times and eventually got Solis in handcuffs and then a WRAP restraint. Solis was cited for multiple crimes.
